Dear Brother Irfan,

Thank you so much for your input. I totally agree with your "thinking aloud" as it makes so much SENSE. Although brother Joseph believes maturbation is okay within marriage, I think it is much more necessary in the absence of a legitimate partner to satisfy one's natural desires. I am sure that this has protected many from fornication and adultery?

Thank you for your reply. Please explain why you do not agree with the following from the link:
Understanding 23:5-7

"...who guard their private parts, except from their spouses or whom their right hands possess - these are not blameworthy. But anyone who seeks more than this, then they are the transgressors." (Qur'an 23:5-7)

This verse is in the context of sexual intercourse with people. Only with one's "spouse" or those "whom their right hands posses" (who also have to be married - 4:24) can one have intercourse with. When one has intercourse with any other than these they become "transgressor" ( الْعَادُون ). This is because that becomes adultery / fornication which is strictly forbidden in Qur'an 24:2 and for which a punishment is prescribed.

The expression "these are not blameworthy" used for those who only engage in sexual acts with married spouses and the word "transgressor", used for those who do it with unmarried people, are indications that the verse is in reference to adultery and fornication.

Therefore, the expression "anyone who seeks more than this" is in reference to anyone seeking someone who is not their married spouse for sexual intercourse rather than masturbation. The intention of the verse is to make a point of marital tie/agreement being a necessary prerequisite for sexual intercourse with another person. Therefore, it cannot be related to masturbation, which is unrelated to the context of discussion. "

There are times when a husband in unable to satisfy a wife due to impotence etc, or a wife is unable to satisfy husband due to infection/ pain etc.
It is possible for some that during masturbation ones mind and thoughts can remain pure and clean, and guilt is unnecessary.

Salaam Brother [Joseph]

Please explain: "12:18 Your souls have tempted you to evil and
12:53 Man's soul is prone to evil. 20:96 My soul prompted me to do what I did." I need to understand where does Satan fit into this?
Thanks to Allah for guiding me to your forum.
Thank you.
